Historical Hotels in Istanbul
Istanbul is an ancient and magical city with a history stretching back thousands of years…
It is full of old buildings that still make you feel the texture and spirit of its history. It is a wonderful feeling to watch these old buildings and dream about what happened inside, who went in and out of these doors, who lived in these houses, who looked through these windows. Hotels, on the other hand, are a different story…
The rooms of the hotels, which host the short-term residents of the cities, are intriguing places that host many more people, memories, and events. Istanbul’s still functioning historical hotels are also very attractive with their stories, events that hatshaped the history of the city, famous guests, and my serious stories.
Pera Palas is undoubtedly the first place that comes to mind when it comes to historical hotels in Istanbul. It was opened with a magnificent ball in 1895 as Turkey’s first hotel by European standards when Beyoğlu was called Pera. There a son of the opening of the hotel was to host the guests brought by the Orient Express, one of the most luxurious train journeys in the world.
Splendid Palace, one of the most elegant buildings of Büyükada and perhaps even Istanbul, rises in Art Nouveau style with its silver domes and red shutters. The synthesis of east and west can also be seen in the architecture of the hotel, with its bright inner courtyard and columns around the courtyard. Splendid Palas, opened in 1908, is also the only hotel in Turkey with the status of a first-degree historical monument and operated by keeping the originality of the first day’s features. The hotel, which also hosted Mustafa Kemal Atatürk at a dinner held in 1929, hosted many balls, including the Republic Balls. When you enter the hotel, it is as if you hear music from the 1930s and see the guests hanging around in the clothes of that period.
As perfect as living in a real palace can be, Çırağan Palace offers this level of excellence to its guests. Çırağan, one of the most luxurious hotels in Istanbul, operated by the Kempinski hotel chain today, was built in 1857 during the reign of Sultan Abdülmecit, taking the palace models from Western culture as an example.
